i have melasmas on my upper lip and on each part of my face aside my nose but not on my nose. they are quite big. i have been using retin-a and hydroquinine for 6 months and that did lighten them but i went to both a plastic surgeon and a dermatologist and they both said the only thing that would make a drastic change is chemical peels. i had my first Vi Peel Friday, it is a new one aimed at melasmas. i was fine, didn't hurt too much, nor after but i am mixed race and don't tend to burn (mixed indian, as in from india, and white). i applied the pads at night, again nothing bad. day 2, same same, my face a bit red and tight, then at night i started peeling around my mouth. i continued and put the second round of pads. today is day three and im peeling. the melasmas are not as faded as i hoped but they are lighter, i will be getting another peel in two weeks. if there are more results from that i may get a third. we shall see. my skin definitely looks healthier.
It has been over a week and my skin is breaking...
